Amazon Oasis: Introducing the first waterproof Kindle e-reader

Share

Unlike the original Kindle Oasis that promised two weeks of power, the new model should offer about six weeks of power via the built-in battery. Last month, the company introduced several new Echo speakers and rolled out refreshed tablets.

Amazon.ca has unveiled the all-new Kindle Oasis, the company's newest e-reader.

Amazon says the Kindle Oasis is faster, and now fits "over 30 per cent more words" per page, leading to less page turns. For waterproofing, the Kindle Oasis is IPX8 rated, which means it should withstand immersion in over 1-metre of water.

"With a larger 7in, 300 ppi display, waterproof design, and Audible built right in, the all-new Kindle Oasis is our most advanced Kindle ever".

Which books are you most excited to read on your Kindle Oasis? The IPX8 rating indicates that the device is waterproof. It will also make your device work much better and the Audible feature works on both Bluetooth headphones as well as on speakers. The all-new Kindle Oasis comes with 8GB storage, which has twice the storage as the first Kindle Oasis and can hold thousands of titles.

The e-reader is now up for pre-order on Amazon.in and will start shipping from November 13. Whilst the Kindle is dissimilar to last year's in several ways, the ambient light sensors that automatically adapt, dependent on your surroundings, are still intact, alongside a very similar model and design.

This Oasis e-book reader supports public and private WiFi networks or hotspots that use the 802.11b, 802.11g, or 802.11n standard with support for WEP, WPA and WPA2 security using password authentication or WiFi Protected Setup (WPS). Starting today, customers can pre-order the new Kindle Oasis for $250. The $44.99 fabric cover is available in Charcoal, Indigo, or Sandstone, and the $59.99 leather cover comes in Merlot, Midnight, and Saddle Tan. The regular model is Wi-Fi only and packs 8GB storage, whereas the mid-tier version has 32GB internal memory and costs $280.
